When I looked up these bands in Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge's data base, I found out two interesting pieces of information--
- The duck with the WF band is noted as having a "big puka left foot." ("Puka" is the Hawaiian word for hole. Perhaps WF got the puka in its foot pad when it stepped on a really sharp Nohu thorn!
- RC, the duck I couldn't tell whether it was a male or female, is a male.
